Like mother, like son! Mariah Carey proved that the only person who can be more like Mariah Carey than Mariah Carey is her son, seven-year-old Moroccan, in a new interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, June 5. During her sitdown, the 48-year-old shared a hilarious story about her little “technological genius” and his aspirational spending habits.
“My son is like a technological genius. He, by the way, ordered a dog the other day. I have to control them with the iPad,” she said of Moroccan and his twin sister, Monroe. “Because otherwise, literally he charged $5,000 on something on Amazon. He figures everything out.”
We know what you’re thinking — five grand isn’t too bad considering Mimi has a net worth of more than a half million dollars, and even his dad, Nick Cannon, is doing pretty well for himself with his $50 million net worth. Of course, there was a happy ending for most involved — except for maybe Moroccan’s would-be dog. Mariah continued, “The other night, apparently, he was with Nick and he ordered a dog. And they called [Nick] and they were like, ‘Your dog is ready.’ And he’s like, ‘I didn’t order a damn dog’… The dog’s been cancelled. We have dogs! They have pets! They have fish, they have everything they need.”
Of course, we only say that it’s a semi-sad story for the dog because we all know that Mariah goes all out when it comes to her pets! The singer — who is never one to shy away from lavish spending — has reportedly done some ridiculous things in the name of spoiling her four-legged friends! It was once claimed that she spent around $20,000 a night to board her pups at a luxury pet hotel known as the “Paw Seasons” for a mini vacation! She’s also been known to charter private planes so they can be treated to luxury while in the sky. Not a bad way to live!
